Documents obtained from Guidestar reveal that John O’Sullivan — former editor and current staff writer and “editor-at-large” for National Review — is listed on the board of directors for the white nationalist organization Lexington Research Institute Limited (aka The VDare Foundation) most commonly known as VDare.
Form 990s obtained from Guidestar reveal he was on their board from 2009 to 2010 with the overview report indicating him on the board of VDare from the 2006 to 2010 (Fiscal year ending on December 31, 2010).
John O’SullivanOn March 15, 2010, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported that white nationalist Richard B. Spencer of Taki’s magazine (see John Derbyshire firing) began a venture with Peter Brimelow, et al, to create a new online white nationalist magazine, Alternative Right.
Form 990 from that same year, 2010, reaveals a $35,000 grant from VDare to Alternative Right located in Whitefish, Montana. The group behind Alternative Right is the National Policy Institute which had their first conference in 2011 entitled, “Towards a New Nationalism.” Alex Knepper of Frum Forum described Richard Spencer “a white nationalist, a bully, and an intellectual coward” in his piece, “Alternative Right’s Ugly Racism”.
With backing from the white nationalist organization VDare in 2010 — at which time NRO’s John O’Sullivan was on the board of directors — Alternative Right has quickly become known for its promotion of racism, white supremacism or nationalism, and race realism, or what many consider “scientific racism.”
